On October 12, 2018, SSA associates accepted this year's KY EXCEL Champion Award on behalf of Sekisui S-Lec America, LLC. Every year The Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection encourages environmental practices in the commonwealth through Environmental Excellence Awards such as this one.
SSA was chosen this year for its commitment to the reduction of greenhouse gases, the reduction of waste, identifying water resource risks and reductions, and the activities to be a zero waste-to-landfill facility. The company also recently installed an 814-kilowatt solar array. Thanks to this system 1.6 million pounds of CO2 will not be released into the atmosphere annually. That is the equivalent of taking 210 midsize cars off of the roads or planting nearly 4,000 trees each year.
This is the second consecutive year SSA has received this award.
